VANCOUVER, BC, June 12, 2020 /CNW/ - Filo Mining Corp. (TSXV: FIL) (NASDAQ: FIL) ("Filo Mining", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a replacement US$5,000,000 credit facility (the "Replacement Facility"), which will be evidenced by a debenture (the "Debenture"), to provide additional financial flexibility to fund the Company's ongoing work programs and provide general working capital. The Replacement Facility replaces an existing credit facility provided by the Lender, and which matures on July 12, 2020. The outstanding balance owing to the Lender under the existing facility as of July 12, 2020, if any, will be transferred and will form part of the amount owing under the Replacement Facility. The Replacement Facility has a term of 12 months ending July 12, 2021 (the "Maturity Date"). No interest is payable during the term of the Debenture, however, any amount of the Replacement Facility remaining unpaid and outstanding on or after the Maturity Date shall bear interest at a rate of 5.00% per annum until repaid in full. PDF Version.
The Replacement Facility has been issued by Zebra Holdings and Investments S.à.r.l. (the "Lender"), a company controlled by a trust settled by the late Adolf H. Lundin, and an insider of the Company. The terms of the Replacement Facility include the Company issuing to the Lender, subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, 480 common shares of Filo Mining (the "Common Shares") per month for each US$50,000 of the Replacement Facility outstanding from time to time up to the Maturity Date. All securities issued in conjunction with the Replacement Facility will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable securities law.
The issuance of Common Shares to an insider and the entering into of the Debenture each constitute a "related party transaction", as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transactions will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to, or the consideration paid for, the Debenture will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
